Paul Le Guen has been appointed as the new manager of Cameroon.
The Frenchman becomes their third manager in just two months, succeeding former Cameroon international Thomas Nkono who took over from German Otto Pfister after his resignation in May.
The 45-year-old led Lyon to three consecutive titles before a spell at Rangers in 2006.
Le Guen managed Paris Saint Germain last season but was informed in May that the club would not be offering him a new contract.
“Paul Le Guen will sign a six-month contract with the Cameroon government to coach the national team,” Cameroon state radio reported.
“His main mission will be to qualify the Indomitable Lions for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.”
Cameroon currently sit bottom of their World Cup qualification group with one point from only two games.
